The red flags are really going up on this one.
'72 Sovereigns are widely available and not highly sought after.
There is no such thing as a '72 in excellent, original condition unless it has been hermetically sealed for 40 years.
An honest seller will know what he thinks it is worth and name a price.
There are plenty of excellent comments in the preceding posts how to deal with this seller.
- Take Chris with you
- Take a comprehensive checklist.
- Have Chris announce all the defects in a loud voice as he discovers them.
- Price the cost of dealing with each defect.
- Then offer what it is worth.
- Be willing to walk away.
Remember, with a '72 Sovereign
in "original" condition, you will likely face:
- Frame separation
- Floor rot
- Non-functioning AC
- Non-functioning refer
- Non-functioning Univolt converter
- Non-legal propane tanks
- No gray water holding tank
- Worn out axles
- Worn out tires (more than 5 years old must be replaced)
- Leaky roof vents.
- Non-functional furnace
Cheers and happy hunting.
